We make conscious Fashion a simple choice
It all begins with a child
Orbasics began as one mother’s journey to find comfortable, stylish and affordable clothes without harmful chemicals for her child and turned into a mission to provide a line of unisex, sweatshop free, organic cotton clothing to all consumers.
The status quo
Our founder Lilija is a mother and a determined businesswoman. She wanted to buy simple organic clothes for her little daughter Nika and it turned out to be a challenge. You've probably experienced something similar before:
- Sharp gender distinctions, either by colour, print or style
- High priced organic options sold by small boutique stores
- Unknown origin of non-organic clothes by big fashion stores
Lilija simply couldn't find anything in-between, no organics that looked stylish, came in high quality and were also affordable. Is there really no other way to make kids clothes?
With a big love for fashion, she decided to find out. She dove deep down the rabbit hole of fashion-making, talking to manufacturers in all of Europe and testing different designs. After months of research, she found that by selling only online, cutting out any middlemen and keeping the clothes to their essentials, everyone can afford organic clothes!
This was the start of Orbasics.
We created the clothes we wished for our and our friends' kids - soft, high-quality, sustainable and affordable basics that are super comfortable to wear.
At Orbasics, our customers actually come first. We strive to build meaningful relationships, to inspire and to make a positive difference.
Caring deeply about the well-being of our kids and the health of our planet, we want to make it easy to do good. We hope to inspire each other to have a positive impact on our world and to make a change together!
When it comes to what your kids wear, there are no compromises. Our soft clothes come in a superior quality that you can feel and are made to last through many generations.
All our basics are made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton by a family-run manufacturer in Portugal. We choose the most ethical and responsible options at any point of our production chain, from the harvesting of the cotton to the packaging of our clothes.

Stylish and Simple
We love keeping clothes to their cool essentials. All our basics are unisex and unicolour for girls and boys to share. Our never-out-of-stock-collection comes in timeless designs that you can mix and match with other favourites.
At Orbasics, we always sell directly and online to you, allowing us to avoid traditional retail markups. This means that we can offer our collection at prices comparable to non-organic brands while never compromising on quality or sustainability. Here's a cost example for a T-Shirt:
